Two start pitchers for fantasy baseball week 12 June 18th – June 24th 2012

The all-star break is rapidly drawing closer, and there are plenty of surprise pitchers making their way into the top 2 tiers of fantasy baseball pitchers.  There are an equally surprising number of pitchers falling out of the top tiers (Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum?).  I will help you set your lineups and choose quality two start pitchers for the upcoming scoring period – week 12 (June 18th thru June 24th)

All stats and projected starts are current as of June 12th, 2012.

If you have any questions about your particular format, please post them in the forums so the community can help assist.
